Wedding bells are ringing for Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock! The American Idol alumni was engaged to Blackstock, the son of her talent manager Narvel Blackstock, since last December and the couple will finally wed this month.
While the couple was originally planning a big bash in Nashville, they were put off by the stress and frustrations of too many decisions, and leaked details, so they opted, at a very late stage, for a romantic elopement to complete their union. The couple sent out cards that said, “Thank you so much for understanding, but it’s just going to be me and Brandon and his two kids and the minister.”
On their decision, Kelly Clarkson said, “Weddings are not for brides or grooms they’re for everyone else.”
Despite the low-key event, that has not stopped Kelly Clarkson from showing her blissfulness openly in the lead-up to her wedding. The joyous bride-to-be has been happily donning wedding dresses for her performances, and has even made her back-up dancers dress up accordingly in wedding garb! In a recent performance, Kelly Clarkson shone in a sweet lace number, while her female dancers wore lilac bridesmaid dresses.
With the marriage, Kelly Clarkson will also become step-mom to Blackstock’s two children, aged 6 and twelve. The excited Clarkson has also said that she would love to give birth to her own children after her marriage as well.
We wish Kelly Clarkson all the best, and look forward to seeing her wedding photos soon! (Psst, we heard that her wedding gown will be a Vera Wang creation!)
